Guidelines for attendance:
- Please plan to arrive no earlier than 30 minutes before your showtime. You will be directed to a parking space.
- The movie audio will be broadcast via FM radio- you’ll be required to turn off your car’s engine after you’ve parked. If you have concerns about your car battery use, we recommend that you bring a standalone radio rather than relying on your car audio.
- To ensure the safety of all in attendance, you will need to remain in your car with your windows up for the duration of the movie. The Ohio History Center will be inaccessible during the event.
- You’re welcome to bring your own snacks and drinks- if you ordered a snack pack from us, your purchase will be handed to you by a masked and gloved staffer through your car window. We ask that you remove all trash as you leave the movie.
